Magicka: Wizard Wars is now part of the Steam Early Access program, allowing players to purchase and play an early version of the game before its official release. Magicka: Wizard Wars, the upcoming spellcasting action PvP game from Paradox North, can now be played during its Alpha phase, giving players a look behind the magic at the equally baffling world of game development and a chance to see the title take shape via their own feedback and suggestions. Three tiered packages are available for purchase during Early Access, along with an option to sign up for the Alpha Test for free; no purchase is necessary during Early Access to play the final version of Magicka: Wizard Wars when the game launches in 2014 (non-Alpha players will simply not have as much fun until then).
In Magicka: Wizard Wars, two teams of four wizards each will cast, blast, and get sassed by one another in pitched battles, utilizing the celebrated dynamic real-time spellcasting system of Magicka, along with some new tricks. In true Magicka fashion, friendly fire is in full effect, and hundreds of spell combinations are possible, with victory going to the wizards who can think and act the fastest -- and stay out of the line of fire. With short battles, skill-based spell-offs, and a set of marvelous robes, Magicka: Wizard Wars aims to provide multiplayer aficionados with a new option for PvP mayhem.
Magicka: Wizard Wars is a player-versus-player (PvP)-focused multiplayer game based on their celebrated slapstick sorcery franchise. Magicka: Wizard Wars, a team-based, fast-paced, two-faced, post-haste, four-on-four twitch action-PvP title, mixes Magicka's hallmark dynamic spellcasting and absurd pop-culture humor with new hardcore game mechanics and a focus on competitive play.
